1 Goulding, William R., Patricia A. Etter, Howard R. Lamar California Odyssey An Overland Journey on the Southern Trails, 1849
Norman The Arthur H. Clark Co. 2009 978087062373 First Edition Hardcover New Book 
356 pages, frontis, maps, illustrations. American Trails Series XXI. "In 1849, William R. Goulding and the Knickerbocker Exploring Company struck out for California on the southern route-a road less traveled. This rare first-person diary of the southern Gold Rush trails, introduced and annotated by Patricia A. Etter, highlights an important alternative route to the Pacific Coast. One of the best-educated Gold Rush participants, Goulding kept a remarkably articulate journal that recounts his meetings with the interesting and important people he encountered along the way. He describes the details of the trail itself-the weather and scenery, birds and animals, and a march "amidst herds [sic] of myriads of buffalo in all directions as far as the eyes could reach." Goulding also recorded encounters with Hispanics and American Indians."
